Same same Hanra, plus they don't fit the holes in the nose cone. Les has dispatched a new batch for us to try.

Maybe LX's are 1.0m thick, but I measured the steel thickness on the LH nose cone (stripped) and it indeed measures 1.6mm. I knew LH's were better.

Got a whole heap of clips from Les today. Tried all of em... none of em any good.... There was only one lot that fitted the hole in the nose cone.... but the badge shaft hole was way to small. The rest of them were way to big to fit into the nose cone....

Hey mate. Not sure the OD would be suitable. The holes in the body work dont seem that big. I guess they could be drilled out larger....(risky).

Hi Les.

Ive noticed RSP are now selling the T O R A N A badges as a repro?

Are you also supplying retaining sockets/clips with these badges????

Hi Brad
No we are not, we have not been able to get any good samples to be able reproduce them.
if anyone has any good samples that we could use to make these we would replace them with new ones once we make them.

Hi Les.

Hmmm. Seems to be some confusion here. I saw these on eBay and contacted the seller which is Brisbane rare spares. Here is there reply:,

Hi,

Yes, the letters do come with the retaining clips.

Kind regards,
Andrew

I asked for a pic of the plugs supplied with the badge. This is the response.


Hi

I dont actually have a picture of the retaining clips. They are a very small cup shaped metal clip that will go into the body and the badge will push into it.

Kind regards,
Andrew

I assume these are the plastic plugs you refer to.

The ones pictured are a mix of mainly NOS ones & a few mint second hand ones. How many would be needed for the purpose of reproducing them. I would like to help if i can but i am reluctant to part with them as i spent years searching high & low for them to use on my SL/R project & i would only be willing to do so if they were returned or replaced with exact the same quality/quantity. Cheers Matt

Hi Guys

While I have been doing a little research into Badge pin locations, I have found that the above letter badges that I have do not have the plastic plugs. They have a metal clip similar to the larger badge clips.

Posted Image

Looking through the parts catalogues, they list the following;

LH
1.265 LETTER, CLIP, NAME PLATE, TRANSFER - Front end panel
Clip, Letter: SP2419 Qty 12

12.182 Letter, Plate, Clip,Rear Deck Lid
Clip Letter Attaching: SP2419 Qty 12

LX
1.265 LETTER, CLIP, NAME PLATE, TRANSFER - Front end panel
Clip, Letter: SP2419 Qty 12

12.182 Letter, Plate, Clip,Rear Deck Lid
Clip Letter Attaching: SP2419 Qty 12

Hope this helps...


cheers
Mick

My original LH nose cone had the same plastic plugs as shown in the photos posted by LH SLR 3300.

The plugs are inserted into the holes in the nose cone from the front and then the letters were installed. They dont go onto the back of the pins once the letters are fitted into the nose cone as you might suspect. I tried to remove them without damage, but they are hard and brittle, l now have about half a set.

Sorry to resurrect this one but I'm looking for some of these plastic plug inserts. My early hatch has the individual T.O.R.A.N.A letters on the passenger side hatch lid. The letters are retained by the push in plastic type plugs. 

 

Did anything come from the search?

 

Cheers Scott
